PAULINE, 57 years old
Paulines’ cancer dates as far back as 13 years or so. She had puss oozing out of her nipples and had painful breasts too. She then went to the hospital for a consult and after testing, was told she had breast cancer. The doctor then advised her to have the breast cut off in order to prevent it from spreading but she was not in support of having surgery.
She decided to meet another doctor who gave her some medications which seemed to manage the situation for a while. She later resulted to Tianshi medications which she consumed for a while and they later became very expensive and unaffordable. As a result, she consulted with the Monk’s clinic at Foncha Street-Bamenda, where she was placed under some natural herbs. She was also advised to stop consuming eggs, meat, crayfish, sweet drinks and alcohol. Pauline has been under natural medication given by the Monks but still experiences the nipple discharge especially when she eats any of the things that were prohibited. Her nipple discharge is a mixture of blood, mucous and has an odor.
